FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Officials say Kentucky shipped $29.2 billion in goods and services abroad last year, an amount that is up nearly 6 percent from 2015.

Other top exports include motor vehicles and pharmaceuticals. The statement says exports increased by a total of $1.6 billion in 2016 over the previous year.

Kentucky’s top trade partners were Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Mexico and Brazil.
